As a company operating in 10 countries with 920,000 sales points and serving 400,000 million consumers, CCI has a significant footprint across its communities. CCI creates a positive impact both directly and indirectly through investing a certain ratio of its annual pre-tax profit in local economies and communities.

CCI’s main goal is to be recognized as one of the most responsible corporate citizens by all stakeholders. To reach this objective, CCI helps build stronger communities, focusing primarily on women empowerment, youth development and water related initiatives. In so doing, CCI collaborates with local and international NGOs and encourages its employees to take active roles through volunteering.

Economic Impact

Our products are produced, sourced (where possible), distributed and sold locally. A bottle of Coca-Cola creates added value for multiple sectors during its journey from the production line to the consumer. Many industries, including agriculture, energy, production, transportation, distribution, retail, cooling, advertising, media and packaging have roles in the production of a single bottle of Coke. Our business stimulates job creation throughout the value chain. We contribute to the economic welfare of each community by employing local people, paying tax to governments, paying suppliers for goods, services and capital equipment, and supporting community investment programs.

Our operations enable 4.1 billion TL of added value in retail business and generate income for 160,000 farmers.

In addition, an independent economic impact study conducted in 2017 for CCI Pakistan and CCI Turkey Operations focused on calculating the output multiplier factor: How many units of output is generated for the country’s economy as a result of CCI’s injecting 1 unit of input.
